Re: [HTCondor-users] Shared File System + HTCondor Linux + HTCondor Windows = â ?

Dear Dimitri,

This is clear. The question concerns best practices. Since HT Condor officially supports Windows we assume there is a solution for the case when there are many Linux and many Linux nodes at the same time. We realize there could be some difficulties, that is expected when Windows is concerned, but the question is still here, how to set up such cross-platform cluster with a shared filesystem. Is it at least possible?

All the best,
Alexander A. Prokhorov

The problem is incompatible ids and permissions. Windows has nfs support and linux has samba, but IME without making the files world-writable both/either's a PITA.
